Bio: Tricia Knoll has been writing poetry since the age of 12. She began submitting poetry for publication after retiring. Nine poems have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
Her first published poem was in 1970 in a tabloid called View from the Bottom. Then for nearly 40 years, she wrote promotional or education materials to earn a living. More than 250 of her haiku and poems have appeared in online or print journals and poetry anthologies. Her poetry chapbook Urban Wild was released from Finishing Line Press in May 2014 and Ocean’s Laughter in 2016.
Described in bytes: Mother, wife, feminist, hula hooper, dancer, weight lifter, runner, Master Gardener. She writes eco-poetry, lyric and narrative poetry and haiku. In 2015 Tricia wrote her thoughts on feminism for The Persimmon Tree Journal and in 2016 a contribution to Trish Hopkinson’s blog on why she regrets waiting until after retirement to begin writing seriously.
Eco-poetry? Poetry that highlights connectedness in nature, responsibility to care for the world we’ve been given, help to remember what we have lost – and encourages holding up hope for doing no more harm. Knoll is thrilled to have “Gray Whale” included in the 2018 anthology Fire and Rain – Eco-Poetry of California out from Scarlet Tanager Press.
